Most heart touching book ever

This book was read to moms at my grandsons Mother’s Day event (Elementary) school. I couldn’t hold back the tears of joy. I was beyond touched by this book. I will be running out to purchase this ASAP 💕💕💕

A must for new Moms

This is the most touching book I ever read to my children. My son is 28 this year and I still tear up reading this book to his children. It is a story of unselfish, everlasting Mother's love.

got this from my son years ago for mothers day.loved it,so sweet I cried.

A Remarkable Concept for a Child

This picture book for young children deals with a unique subject matter, the aging of a mother who is loving and devoted. The story begins with a mother and her newborn infant and shares a refrain in which she sings "Love You Forever......etc...." It moves through his various stages of life, including adulthood when he moves away. At the end when she is elderly and ill, we see him rocking her in his arms the way she has done with him over the years and singing the love you forever refrain. It helps children to understand the importance of enduring love as well as the life cycle of a parent.

Must Read for all Children

My friend had this book. After I read it I knew I had to purchase two to give to my children. In the back I attached an "Invoice" - and charged N/C for such things as skinned knees, bandaids, nights up with sick children, etc.; I made the invoices very specific from their lives. I took it with me the next time I went to visit them and read it to them aloud. It is important to me that my children know just how much I love them and this book says it well. A precious story -

Guaranteed to make you cry!

I had never heard of this story until the last semester of Nursing school when one of our instructors took it out and read it to us. She said she did it for every graduating class because it reminds her of us/them. I cried through the whole thing. I'm not a mother, but I am an aunt and daughter and this gets to me every single time. Everyone should read it at least once or buy it for someone they love.

A Beautiful, Touching Parable

This little classic is readily and easily digested by one who has known the true love of a mother. My mother gave me this book during the first Christmas with my new baby daughter in 1992. I had no idea that within the year, my father would be gone, and I would begin to give tender care to my precious little mother who would begin "getting very sick" much like the mother in the book. I cried a bucket of tears as I read it aloud with my wife, mother and father for the very first time. When my mom passed on, it was a tender and precious time at her bedside, and very reminiscent of this tender little book. Today, my two girls go for it regularly on my shelf at bedtime. They tease me because I can't get through it without crying. Funny to me that they have a very good grasp of allegory and they, unlike some of the book's critics, understand that the scenes with the mother coming to the man's apartment are actually his memories of her love. They understand, as I explain to them that the love poured into the son by his mother, has taught him how to love his new baby daughter at the end. Love begets love, and this little childrens' parable is a powerful reminder! I highly recommend _Love You Forever_ to anyone who enjoyed a wonderful love with their mother. To others, I'm sorry but you simply won't (and obviously don't) understand. It's not written for you.

A great book for your kids or your mom

This is another one of those books I can't read without having to dab at my eyes. Any loving parent, or child of a loving parent, will recognize the overwhelming love the mother in this story feels for her son. When her son is a newborn, she rocks him and sings to him, "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be." When he's asleep, she rocks him and sings him that song through each stage of his childhood. When he's a grown man with his own home, she drives over to his house with a ladder, makes sure he is fast asleep, climbs through his bedroom window, then rocks him and sings to him (my husband thinks this is a little strange, but I'm convinced that there are plenty of mothers out there who would do the same if they thought they could get away with it). The tears come when the mother gets sick, and can't finish the song. Her son then holds her in his lap, rocks her, and sings to her. Then he goes home, picks up his newborn daughter, and sings. The illustrations are a beautiful complement to the story. Not only does the son grow up, but the mother slowly grows older. Her house keeps its old-fashioned look, even down to the rotary phone on her bedside; his house is more modern, with up-to-date kitchen appliances. The mother has a striped cat that appears in several illustrations of the boy growing up. In his house, there is a kitten, that grows into a cat, that turns into a rather large, well-fed cat by the end of the story. Not only am I sharing this book with my kids, but I gave my mom a copy for Mother's Day.
